business casual in navy for a spring / summer look
Heels are only as good as your walk with them on.
If y’all don’t know yet, my current pharmacy is closing, and I’m getting laid off at the end of this month. I’ve been on a job hunt these past few weeks and decided to blog about an outfit I wore for an interview.
My boyfriend thinks my outfits are too loud for interviews and could possibly be offensive or unappealing to the interviewers. I understand that my choice of clothing is not the typical business interview look. The blazer over a white poplin collared shirt with pants or skirts and heels. Why though?
I refuse to be generic! I want to memorable in an interview for being me and not somebody the interviewer wants to see me as. David (the boyfriend) even “googled” an image of business attire and forwarded it to me. Even if I wanted to dress like that I would have to go shopping because I definitely don’t own anything plain, really. Well, here it goes… My interpretation of an appropriate interview look.
Other than black, what other color is muted enough for an interview? Obviously, navy! Plus, black is too scorching hot for the Texas heat, so my go to color is navy during the spring and summer. As for the blouse, none of my blouses have collars and are all vibrant colored or patterned. I am very limited on outfit choices when it comes to the stereotypical “interview look”. I picked out my favorite blouse with small enough prints, having the least distractions, and navy accents to correspond with my pants. Even if you don’t really need it, add a belt because it’s necessary with a tucked in blouse. Imagine having your belt loops dangling with your shirt tucked in..? Idk, it seems odd to me, lol.
Okay, as for the shoes, I cannot walk with ease in heels. I have the options between loafers or flats. I have to admit, maybe I should have stuck with a more muted color. However, all my clean and proper flats are from Tory Burch, and the branding is pretty loud, right? Whatevs, I just really love wearing shoes that give a POP of color to my outfit! I think that’s forgivable for an interview? 🙂
Any suggestions an interview outfit for me?
